Prohibition Cocktail 9 Aug 2012

As far as adding “dashes” of ingredients, I bought a few dasher tops from,  I got them because I was making my own bitters,  but anytime a recipe calls for a dash or two of something, I just use a dasher cap.

Red Snapper Cocktail 22 May 2012

Sounds really good.  I made a drink, which I called the Spanish Mary.  Instead of tomato juice, I used gazpacho soup, then added Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco chipotle sauce, and vodka.  It was really good.

That’s the best garnish so far.

Brandy Alexander Cocktail 1 Sep 2012

In your book, you say “This drink is often referred to as a Brandy Alexander which suggests you could use other spirits in place of brandy.”

Well, I got a Boston shaker set at an antique shop a while back.  The glass had different recipes printed on it.  One I was surprised to see the Alexander (not the Brandy Alexander.)  It called for GIN, creme de cacao, and cream.  I don’t recall the exact proportions, as the set was a gift for a friend who wanted to get into home bar tending, and I never saw it again.
